Crystals for the 12 Steps

From The Spiritual Dimensions of Healing Addictions by Donna Cunningham, MSW and Andrew Ramer



Amethyst: brings clarity and honesty to mind. 1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.

Green Tourmaline: draws in strong and loving healing energies 2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

Pink Tourmaline: carries nurturing, supportive, universal loving energy 3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

Chrysocolla: opens the inner eye to see yourself clearly 4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.


Malachite: brings to the surface hidden guilty places, so you can see them clearly 5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

Flourite: encourages clarity 6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

Rose Quartz: connects you with loving energy 7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

Carnelian: connects you with the energy of the earth in a grounded way that will support a new way of relating to others 8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.


Aventurine: helps you move energy freely through the heart center to begin to repair relationships 9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do
so would injure them or others.


Citrine: brings the golden warmth and radiance of the sun to your dark and inner places 10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

Clear Quartz: deepens your connection to Spirit 11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

Pink Kunzite: channels a powerful energy of healing and love 12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
